Validation problems with iTunes receipts

Brendan Vanous
started a topic on Fri, 07 November 2014 at 5:05 PM

I'm having trouble validating receipts for iTunes purchases with ValidateIOSReceipt (http://api.playfab.com/Documentation/Client/method/ValidateIOSReceipt). How can I debug my issue?

First, you should decode the receipt with Apple directly using verifyReceipt on either https://sandbox.itunes.apple.com or https://buy.itunes.apple.com (depending on whether the receipt is from Sandbox or Live). The PlayFab validation API handles receipts from both.

With that, you can then evaluate the error you're getting from PlayFab:

  • InvalidReceipt: Something about the receipt data is incorrect. If it came back correctly from Apple, you should check that the "receipt-data" sent to Apple is the same as the "ReceiptData" sent to PlayFab.

  • ReceiptDoesNotContainInAppItems: The item purchased is not defined as an In-App purchase in iTunes. In-App purchases will show up in an "in_app" subsection of the receipt data.

  • InvalidBundleID: The Bundle ID defined for your title in PlayFab (on the Settings page of the Game Manager) needs to match your game's Bundle ID in iTunes (usually something like "com.company_name.app_name").

  • ReceiptContainsMultipleInAppItems: A receipt should only contain one In-App purchase.

  • ReceiptAlreadyUsed: PlayFab tracks receipt usage, to ensure that your title cannot be hit with a "replay" attack (where players re-send an already used receipt, to get the item multiple times). You'll need to generate a new receipt for the test.

I have a question about the ReceiptContainsMultipleInAppItems error. With the iOS 7 and later receipts, all IAPs are included in the receipt, so it's likely that we will be submitting a receipt with multiple items, including some already processed by PlayFab. What's the proper way to use the iOS receipt (found at [[NSBundle mainBundle] appStoreReceiptURL])?

Thanks for your patience. We have now update for full support of the iOS7+ receipt format, so you don't have to do anything extra to work with these receipts.

We actually do validation against both sandbox and live - this is necessary, since live titles will still have sandbox receipts sent to them by Apple's test team, as part of validation of updates and new content. So regardless of which environment the receipt is from, if it is valid it will work. The issue is that the receipt data isn't valid. If you send it directly to the verifyReceipt API method that Apple exposes (the one we reference), you'll get the same error. Where did this receipt data come from? Looking at it, it's not even correctly formatted, which implies that whatever source is providing this data is modifying it in some way.

which i sent to "https://sandbox.itunes.apple.com/verifyReceipt" not to "https://buy.itunes.apple.com/verifyReceipt"

like what you mean in this forum

First, you should decode the receipt with Apple directly using verifyReceipt on either https://sandbox.itunes.apple.com or https://buy.itunes.apple.com (depending on whether the receipt is from Sandbox or Live). The PlayFab validation API handles receipts from both.
but i always get error like playfab always
validate my receipt to "https://buy.itunes.apple.com" even the receipt that i send was from sandbox id,

that

thank you

So the receipt in your post is actually the hex encoding of the full receipt data. Converting it to a string yields this:

The portion which we consider the receipt is the purchase-info, which is a base64-encoded representation of the receipt. This should be passed in as the receipt when calling receipt validation in PlayFab. Converting it from base64 gets us this:

{

 "original-purchase-date-pst" = "2015-09-03 03:32:42 America/Los_Angeles";

 "unique-identifier" = "f448c4bf94f9f8cf9810960c5921b0fa0396bd03";

 "original-transaction-id" = "1000000170472794";

 "bvrs" = "1.0";

 "transaction-id" = "1000000170472794";

 "quantity" = "1";

 "original-purchase-date-ms" = "1441276362312";

 "unique-vendor-identifier" = "EF06CDC8-1197-457F-955E-30C9743D7649";

 "product-id" = "iap_balified_001";

 "item-id" = "1033806114";

 "bid" = "com.dragongamestudio.balifiedwordgame";

 "purchase-date-ms" = "1441276362312";

 "purchase-date" = "2015-09-03 10:32:42 Etc/GMT";

 "purchase-date-pst" = "2015-09-03 03:32:42 America/Los_Angeles";

 "original-purchase-date" = "2015-09-03 10:32:42 Etc/GMT";

}

Which does match the result you got from Apple. Does that make sense?

to playfab right?

okay, i will try, thank you :)


Brendan Vanous said on Thu, 03 September 2015 at 4:15 PM

Hmm... actually, I get a number format exception from Apple on that one. Can you try this with a fresh receipt?

im sorry one more question, is cloudscript support this validation fot android and IOS?


Brendan Vanous said on Thu, 03 September 2015 at 9:06 PM

Excellent - glad to hear this is working for you, now.

For Cloud Script, what is the scenario you have in mind? Right now, we don't support Client API calls from Cloud Script, but that's because they shouldn't be necessary. Receipt validation in our service works like so:

  • You send us the receipt

  • We confirm that it has never been used before and that it is valid

  • We take the item from your catalog matching the item specified in the receipt (Product ID) and put it in the player's inventory

That way, a player can only get the things for which they have valid receipts - it's all secure.

Brendan


dragongamestudio said on Thu, 03 September 2015 at 11:19 PM

you mean, i just need to send the decoded receipt, and the item will be automatically added into the player inventory?

we have scenario like promotion that we want to change the price for premium member or the amount of coins that player will get after player bought the IAP, but we dont want player have to update their application to get the promo.

and since once our application approved by apple we cannot edit the IAP, so we decide to have some IAP with different price and we only need to change the IAP code in playfab catalog.
and with that we hope we can change the price and ammount of the coin easly from playfab only, and not change it in itunes

thank you

Chandra


Brendan Vanous said on Fri, 04 September 2015 at 12:38 AM

Correct - the design is to ensure a complete transaction, based upon the receipt. So long as you've configured your catalog with the items associated with the products in the receipts, you should be fine.

For your promotion, the thing to understand is that Apple requires that all real money purchases take place using their system - there's no getting around that. However, you can sell just your virtual currency for real money, and sell everything else in your game for virtual currency. That gives you a lot more control over how you manage the cost of items in your game. You could, for example, set up Stores in PlayFab with discount prices for various purposes, and present those to users based upon whatever criteria you set.
